Identity inference of genomic data using long-range familial searches
TLDR
Testing models of relatedness, Erlich et al. show that many individuals of European ancestry in the United States—even those that have not undergone genetic testing—can be identified on the basis of available genetic information, indicating a need for procedures to help maintain genetic privacy for individuals.
Should police have access to genetic genealogy databases? Capturing the Golden State Killer and other criminals using a controversial new forensic technique
TLDR
Limits on police access to genetic genealogy databases in particular may be desirable for reasons other than current public demand for them, according to preliminary data from survey respondents.
Cryptic Distant Relatives Are Common in Both Isolated and Cosmopolitan Genetic Samples
TLDR
The ubiquity of distant relatives, detected via IBD segments, in both ethnolinguistic populations and in large ‘unrelated’ populations samples has important implications for genetic genealogy, forensics and genotype/phenotype mapping studies.
1 DNA PHENOTYPING : PREDICTING ANCESTRY AND PHYSICAL APPEARANCE FROM FORENSIC DNA
TLDR
The development of the Parabon ® Snapshot TM DNA Phenotyping System (“Snapshot”) is discussed, which was built over the past four years with funding from the US Department of Defense and is now in active use by law enforcement.
First all-in-one diagnostic tool for DNA intelligence: genome-wide inference of biogeographic ancestry, appearance, relatedness, and sex with the Identitas v1 Forensic Chip
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the Identitas v1 Forensic Chip holds great promise for a wide range of applications including criminal investigations, missing person investigations, and for national security purposes.
Maximum-likelihood estimation of recent shared ancestry (ERSA).
TLDR
A maximum-likelihood method for the estimation of recent shared ancestry (ERSA) from the number and lengths of IBD segments derived from high-density SNP or whole-genome sequence data that greatly expands the range of relationships that can be estimated from genetic data and is implemented in a freely available software package.
Robust relationship inference in genome-wide association studies
TLDR
A rapid algorithm for relationship inference using high-throughput genotype data typical of GWAS that allows the presence of unknown population substructure and performs relationship inference on millions of pairs of individuals in a matter of minutes, dozens of times faster than the most efficient existing algorithm.
Privacy and genetic genealogy data
This letter enumerates three major factors that make trawling DNA databases designed for genealogical research to identify individuals who may have left DNA traces at crime-scenes less invasive of
More than 26 million people have taken an at-home ancestry test - e-traces
